gate now this 150 meet in lonely installation is made up of 100000 colorful stream is with messages written by germans floating like a giant wave right in the center of it. and just 2 kilometers away alexanderplatz but in many mila will be officially launching the festival week and that is where our chief political correspondent melinda crane is standing by for us melinda good to see you what exactly is happening that today. well i'm here at alexanderplatz which is in the very heart of east berlin and is a nationally known landmark nearly as famous for example as the brandenburg gate and that is one of the reasons why the city has chosen this spot to inaugurate that weeklong commemoration that you mentioned it's going to include art installations
4:03 pm
it will be opened in about an hour by the mayor on the stage that you may be able to discern behind me after that here at alexander plots we will see major projections of historic scenes 30 years ago on the buildings all around me we'll see performances installations lectures and more now this commemoration is entitled 7 days 7 places which is basically a recognition of the fact that although we tend to think of the night of november the night that the wall fell as the day that east germany's or that the division of germany was healed in fact the revolution the peaceful revolution was a whole sequence of events over weeks and even months and one of the milestones in that history did take place right here at alexanderplatz 30 years ago today let's take a look back. in november 989 the exodus of people leaving east germany reached
4:04 pm
a peak those who decided to stay demanded more freedom more than half a 1000000 staged a mass protest on east berlin alexanderplatz the largest demonstration in the history of east germany. it's as if someone has pushed open the window. years of intellectual economic and political stagnation. they can only years reeking of apathy. double speak and bureaucratic. despotism what you wrote is true of the communist regime had subtly and publicly lost all support but even then no one predicted that just 5 days later the berlin wall would fall well into tell us about the importance of the demonstrations that. well the people who are going eyes to it
4:05 pm
were actually a very diverse group actors artists members of church groups academics some of them very very prominent deede others largely unknown and they actually went to the trouble of applying for a permit to hold this demonstration which was the 1st time that had occurred in east germany and the permit was actually grab it and nonetheless they could not know when they began assembling here that morning 30 years ago how many people would actually show up and whether demonstrations would be met with violent repression because in fact the police had used violence and earlier demonstrations a month before and the new head of east germany at the time was known to have spoken with understanding of the harsh violent chinese reaction to the protests at tiananmen square in the same year the fact is that didn't occur those who spoke here were able to air their demands for democratic freedoms for transparency for
4:06 pm
justice peaceably in the presence of communist party officials and in fact the protest was even televised apparently without official authorization showing in fact that the strictures of east germany were beginning to crumble one of the organizers said that when she saw that communist party official take the stage and he was permitted by the demonstrators to speak and she saw his hands shaking she knew that the days of the east german regime were numbered and of course she was right indeed they were and what about those people who were then then i mean what do they feel about what has happened since. i think the short answer would be it's complicated if you speak with east germans many of them will tell you their lives have absolutely changed for the better thanks to unification and at the same time they will tell you they are sometimes painfully aware of the ongoing divisions between east and west but also beyond that even divisions within families with in
4:07 pm
circles of friends who diverging their opinions about what the fall of east germany meant and particularly about the aftermath of unification what that has meant for east germans sense of identity also for their sense of security so i think what we what we see here is that it takes history a long long time to play out is by no means linear and although this is being billed as a celebration and a festival in fact there will be many discussions that will pay tribute to this ambivalence and complexity our chief political correspondent linda crane thanks a lot well much has changed since the wall fell the once divided city has been unified but as we report some divisions still remain. the center of the island skyscrapers and tourists filled the streets but this was the

4:18 pm
news one unit have parted ways with coach nico that following the club's 51 defeat to frank on saturday at mackay bridge from the sports joins me in studio to talk more about this well rather sensational bit of sports news welcome to you ed i mean it was certainly a brutal loss of course for buying on saturday do you think it was the final stall well i think it was the nature of the defeat that really was the final nail in the coffin for nico coaches rain on unit results had been paul throughout the season binded failed to win hearts of their blunders league matches until this point in the season so 2 losses and 3 draws from the 10 match days at the start of the season that did murmurings of play on play and rest one of the club's icons thomas miller said he felt like he'd been so pushed to the sidelines and he wasn't getting the game time he wanted and i think once the players start coming out to the media and saying we're not really happy with the training and things like that then you're in a bit of trouble but like i say i do think it was the nature of this humiliating
4:19 pm
defeat against frank but that's all you need when things are going to and that's what cost him his job so right now they're in their 4th in the table which actually doesn't sound that relative but of course i mean it's all relative in buying a used to being pretty near the top so is this really a crisis for them to think well it is a crisis if you just do it like you say through the threes i mean yeah exactly through the prism of the expectation on a by unit coach yes they're 4th in the table they're still in the cup they actually have a perfect record in europe 3 games 3 wins in the champions league they've only lost 2 games all season and have done all of this actually with a pretty depleted defense which certainly isn't coaches fultz however he was handed $140000000.00 euros to spend during the summer which is a lot of money completely revamped scored basically gave him everything he could have possibly $1.00 seed and he didn't get the results that they're happy with and that's what happens by munich now we actually have reports that we've prepared to give us a little more background information on what happened over the last days and weeks out by munich so let's take a look at that now. a humiliating 51 defeat on. saturday against his old club
4:20 pm
frankfurt it was simply too much by your munich bosses who parted ways with the coach on sunday night. until the middle of 2021. been with the bavarian. and after a shaky start. in his 1st season but recent weeks have seen inconsistent results and discord within the team after the frankfurt debacle. this is what has happened is no fluke if you saw the cup game in bochum last week with what has happened isn't really a big surprise to me it's kind of reasonable rational but it can't just be blamed on getting a red card early in the game it's the order card to nothing worked out. so now we are in a situation which we have to confront a woman joins us another we will have to analyze things and talk about it but of
4:21 pm
course we have to change something and even covert himself saw the need for improvement before learning of his sacking. videos a man less we shouldn't be losing $51.00 what we have to grasp is that sure with a man less it's going to be more difficult so when. something like that should never happen. now those same worries will be inherited by covertness successor in the hot seat at bahrain. that is officially out the question is now of course he takes over well in the short term hands he flicked the assistant manager and he'll be taken over for the next 2 games course in the champions league this week and then deck dortmund this weekend for 2 big games now for any of our viewers out there thinking where do i know that name from hands you flick he was actually the assistant coach when germany won the world cup in 2014 so there is some coaching pedigree there however he isn't a real 1st team coach from elite club and they do need to find somebody now some of the names in question at the moment erik 10 hog the coach
4:22 pm
a very young and hard pressing and dynamic team to the semifinals of last year's champions league. should say no that sort of hotspur didn't actually fantastic job you know revolutionized that club in the last few years and a few old heads have also been linked and shows a marine or 2 people very famous in england from their time in the premier league and also might select with the former events or sports but they're going to find somebody quick probably somebody who's unattached from a club so the front runners are probably alegria. people at that but i have to do something very quick i think big names out there it still sounds like a tough. job and do you think that buying can actually salvage this season now i think they are absolutely can i think they're back to where they think you know we could wait and see how bad things get they've not done that they've they've gone straight in the they've made a big decision they still of still definitely good enough to win the pot as they like i said there was 140000000 euro out why they didn't buy dross they're very very good players and i think of a new coach comes in he can really change their season around they may still win the bundesliga. mccambridge thanks
4:23 pm
